Replace CHAR Data Type with VARCHAR


Dynamics GP stores text fields using the CHAR data type. This pads the value with spaces. CHAR wastes space and introduces problems with custom reporting. We have to add RTRIM to custom queries to get rid of the extra spaces. Please consider converting to using VARCHAR for text fields.

Replace checklinks with SQL Foreign Keys


Checklinks is a symptom of a problem that need not exist, and likely a holdover from the application's past. Now that only Microsoft SQL Server is supported as a database backend, there are powerful features available that weren't when multiple database backends were supported. Please define ...

Native PDF Support


In order to generate PDFs from Dynamics GP, Adobe Acrobat Pro must be installed. It's expensive, and an administrative hassle, to have to license this for users just to be able to print and email PDFs from Dynamics GP. Microsoft Word has had the ability to natively generate PDFs for years now....

SmartList Increase Performance


SmartList is a great tool, but really slow to load results. The rows seem to load one by one and users slowly watch the row count increase until the row limit is released. SQL can return thousands of rows in a second, and it is possible to load a Window grid control just as quickly. Dynamic...

Improve Login Speed by Improving Efficiency of "Updating Menus"


After a user signs in to GP, it appears the application is ready, but it is really not. If the user changes to a module page, he or she will see many items on the page that are not applicable and not really available. If the user tries to switch companies, a message will be displayed that it...
